The Southern Shakespeare Company plans to put a twist on Romeo & Juliet
next spring by putting race relations at the forefront of the play.
The story of the Montagues and the Capulets will take on a new spin in the
spring of 2018. The Southern Shakespeare Company hopes to portray the
classic couple of Romeo & Juliet as inter-racial. The company’s Education Director Phil Croton wants this play to start a dialogue about race.
